Open Circle

Rob Hernández presents “LGBTIQ+ Human rights?” at the Open Circle gathering at the Lake Chapala Society (LCS) on Sunday, June 20, 10:30 a.m.

Many of us want to support the effort for the rights of LGBTIQ+ people but we do not believe that activism is for us. However, there are many ways in which we can help and collaborate with civil organizations or in a personal way, to start a cultural change in our environment. From the “like,” supporting LGBTIQ+ artists, to demonstrating in the streets.

Rob Hernández presents a panoramic view in which all of us can be part of the creation of a more inclusive society, in which no matter your sexual orientation, you have the freedom to be and to live your way.

Hernández is a Mexican cultural manager and promoter. Committed to the fight for the recognition of LGBT+ rights, he has managed and produced national and international projects that promote respect and non-discrimination. He has worked with civil organizations for ten years in the area of ​​communication and cultural management.
